I used a putty knife to push in clips to lift the top of the dryer off to gain access to the thermal fuse and the high limit device. The thermal fuse was close to the top and easy to do. The high limit part was a little further down the back side of the dryer and a little harder to get to, but watching the video online helped a lot. The most important part was fixing the root cause of the dryer. Lint. I empty the lint tray every single time I dry a load, however, after removing the front panel, I found 12 years of lint packed into the channel. (You may want to do this BEFORE your dryer goes out.) After removing the lint and replacing the parts the dryer works like new again, and it only took about 30 minutes! I am a 57 year old woman so if I can do this anyone can. The best part was that I ordered my part on a Tuesday morning and it was delivered the very next day! Great service!

I came home from work to notice the dryer singing a different tune than usual. I opened the door and noticed that the tub wasnt turning. I popped the top of the dryer up to find a disentigrated belt. Fired up the computer and in a few minutes had ordered the $8 ($15 including shipping) replacement belt. 3 Days later took the shopvac and cleaned up the lint and broken belt pieces. Installed the new belt and was back in business with my 8 year old dryer. ** The only complaint comes from my wife who got her hopes up for a new front load washer and dryer** thanks partselect for saving my wallet in more than one way!

Belt Broke

  • Customer: Dann from Granville, NY
  • Difficulty: Really Easy
  • Time to Complete: Less than 15 mins
  • Tools Required: Screw drivers
  • 0 of 0 people found this instruction helpful
I watched the video to know how to change the belt. I removed the front panel and slid the belt over the tub (you will have to pick the tub up a little). Then I reached around with one hand and slid the belt over the pulley. Then I used the same one hand to push the tensioner back and slip the belt behind it. You will be doing most of the work by feeling not by vision but that's where their video is helpful. I paused the screen on my laptop where it shows how the tensioner goes around the belt. Also when you slide the belt over the tub look for the grove the previous belt left for alignment. It took me 10 minutes.

Disconnect power source remove front panel, lift drum off mounts, push old belt off the rear of the drum and remove drum from dryer cabinet. release tension on idler ass. and remove assembly idler was wrong depth so I had to remove the wheel from new assembly and replace it on the old mount (not a big deal, easier than returning it for a replacement 5 min. job)don't forget to vacuum out all the lint that accumalates in dry cabinet ( big fire hazard if left in there) lay new belt over drum, sneak it pass all obsticles and route it around idler which is the hardest part because of limited room for arms and hands. Make sure drum is snapped back into the rear seal and spin by hand to check proper belt alignment. Replace front panel and run.

I followed the excellent video instructions for dryer drive belt replacement. The tensioner proved to be a little tricky. I also had to fiddle the drum back into position. Now that I've actually done the repair, it would take half as long if doing it over.

Stumbled across this websites video on how to open the dryer lid and replace 2 parts. Went and did it the same way and wala.. done. Before going wild and just unscrewing everthing take a moment to look over how everything is positioned it will help out later. I got a little confused on how to wedge the little fuse bracket back on, that took most of the 30min of the operation.

Dryer would not start

I'm a woman over 50 with little experience in appliance repair, but I didn't want to buy a new dryer. Landlord's Electrician ruled out house circuit. Viewed the expert videos. Opened top with putty knife, front with screw driver,cleaned out front lint areas then removed, tested and ruled out door switch and heater. Then removed the thermal switch, which tested to be dead. All parts were tough to remove, but saw fellow on video having trouble pulling off wires so it gave me confidence to use a little force and plyers. Since I knew if I didn't damage parts I could return them I gambled and spent under $30 to save my old dryer. It runs better than it has in years, so now I can save money on the electric bills and know how to maintain more than just the vent out. Thank you part select, because without the videos I would not have tried this by myself.
